Hi. I am looking at purchasing a Funkey Longranger 700 size body. I am looking at using the Align
T-Rex 700 L Dominator DFC mechanics. I want Pod & Boom mechanics so I can fly outside the body first. I also want a scale looking head hence DFC. I have seen on the forum people use 600 mechanics in the Funkey 700 fuse with a 700 tail boom. I know the 700 mechanics are more expensive than the 600 but I don't mind paying more for better quality. My question is
No 1. Am I better with a Funkey Longranger 600 with Align 600 mechanics, or a Funkey 700 with Align 600 mechanics, or a Funkey 700 with Align 700 mechanics as generally big Heli's fly better.
Question 2 is will the Align 700 L Dominator DFC mechanics fit in the Funkey 700 Long Ranger body.
Also are the 700 mechanics that much bigger than the 600 as I might install a scale cockpit and sound module if there is room in the fuselage. I am an experienced RC Heli guy but have not dealt with DFC heads before. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Best regards from Australia

The Dfc is a too low head for it,

The Longranger/Jetranger have long shafts.

You will find the reason the 700 gets used more is due to using the 800 size boom, which means you will run longer blades 790/810's the 600 will not cope with those length of blades, especially on a DFC head which has a low C of G..

You are probably better off putting this in the scale forum there are couple of us who have longrangers and I am currently building a Jetranger/Trex 700 using vario fuse.

edit..

I see u have put this in scale forum, will re post more there

All The Best
